Surprised it's only $600,000. It's California, after all. Nice digs.

Wolf - The Nuke is right. . . Nice little strip. I hate to take it down ;)

Chaplan and Sons - Thank you for the details. More little things I didn't really think of. In fact, some great visual imagery there.

If my company was doing the demolition after surveys, etc... were done. I would use a Hitachi 330 with about a 50 foot long reach and a rotating grapple to take it down. Before I brought it down I would go through the entire building salvage Wire, Water Heaters, Sinks, Tubs, Furnaces, Coils, Refridgerators, anything worth value that I can scrap or sell later. I would bring a Rubble Master on site and crush all the concrete and brick into finished material. I would recycle all the vintage timber off the site and take all of the other C&D material to the local landfill. Only other equipment to be used on this job would be an Dust Boss until I got down to the footings then I would bring in my JCB 330 and 260 to remove footings, pipes, underground utilties then bring in my Bobcat T250 to rake the area spread some straw and seed the area if nothing else was being put in its place.

1% of all demolitions are performed with explosives. . .

Darn it. :mad: I was hoping for a nice implosion, but I figured it might be over-the-top. ;)

Thanks Turbo. This is helpful. I really appreciate the information.

Yes, what is involved?

Might it be done with explosives, or is that overkill for smaller buildings?

Do the buildings need to be evacuated for several days for preparation?

How far away do people have to be to watch? (what kind of safety zone is required?)

Thanks for your help.

I am not sure what you are asking? How long would a demolition like this take? What is all involved in a demolition like this?

Update: If it helps, this is *not* an anti-demolition story. It's about private property rights, eminent domain, and government bureaucrats (as well as other conservative themes.) The demo crew are not the "bad guys".

Hello. My name is Carolyn Criss. I am an author doing research for a novel. I would appreciate any assistance you can offer regarding the following situation.

(I'll try to post a photo on the next message.)

The hypothetical area is a small hotel (three story; built in the sixties) and a series of shops adjacent to a four-lane road. The tourist location faces a beach approximately eighty feet from the face of the hotel. Behind the buildings, a residential section sprawls up the hill.

Demolition Day
1) The owners of the hotel are the last to leave. How many days preparation does the demo company need? (We'll presume they've had time to prep the rest of the block)

2) What kind of equipment? Excavator? Is the job too small for explosives?

3) How big would the blocked off/secure area need to be? Would residents in the area behind have to evacuate for the day? Could people watch the demolition from the beach?

4) Would the demolition take days?

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks :)
